ONE reason we go to the movies is to soak up a kind of erotic energy that only they can provide. There is nothing quite like the voyeuristic thrill of sitting in the dark and dreaming ourselves into the skins of beautiful, larger-than-life people rapt in a kiss. Movies have probably taught most of us more about what passes for romantic etiquette than any textbook or novel or trendy magazine. Hollywood's iconic princesses and vamps, playboys and action heroes have shown us how to flirt, how to kiss and -- without actually showing much of it, even as censorship barriers have crumbled in recent decades -- how to have sex. Each generation has its own favorite memory of a love scene that was so compelling that it became a mass cultural daydream. In the 's and early 60's, those of us craving more erotic realism than Hollywood could provide gorged on European films, which showed bare breasts and open-mouthed kissing, with Sweden, France and Italy leading the liberated pack.
